Cornell University 



Graduate School of Medical Sciences 



Purpose 

The Graduate School of Medical Sciences, a semi- 
autonomous component of the Graduate School of 
Cornell University, provides opportunities for advanced 
study and research training in specific areas of the 
biomedical sciences. Graduate programs leading to 
the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy are offered in the 
fields of biochemistry, biophysics, cell and develop- 
mental biology, developmental therapy, genetics, 
immunobiology, molecular biology, microbiology, neu- 
robiology and behavior, pathology, pharmacology, 
physiology, and virology Certain of these fields of 
study also offer programs leading to the degree of 
Master of Science. Collaborative programs with Cor- 
nell University Medical College lead to the combined 
degrees of Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of 
Medicine. 

The faculty of the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences recommends the award of advanced general 
degrees not only as the result of the fulfillment of 
certain formal academic requirements, but also as 
evidence of the development and possession of a 
critical and creative ability in science. Demonstration 
of this ability is embodied in a dissertation which the 
candidate presents to the faculty as an original re- 
search contribution in the chosen area of study. 

A close working relationship between student and fac- 
ulty is essential to the program of the Cornell 
University Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 
Guidance for each student is provided by a Special 
Committee, a group of at least three faculty members 
selected by the student. This Special Committee is 
granted extraordinary independence in working with 
its student. Other than a broad framework of Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences requirements for resi- 
dence, examinations, and a thesis, and additional 
requirements of the particular field of study chosen by 
the student, the Special Committee is free to design 
an individualized program of study with its student. No 
overall course, credit-hour, or grade requirements are 
set by the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. A 
student is recommended for a degree whenever the 
Special Committee judges the student qualified. 

History 

The opportunity for graduate study leading to ad- 
vanced general degrees in the biomedical sciences 
was first offered at the Cornell University Medical Col- 
lege, in cooperation with the Graduate School of 
Cornell University, in 1912. In June of 1950, Cornell 
University, in association with the Sloan-Kettering In- 



stitute for Cancer Research, established additional 
opportunities for graduate study by forming the Sloan- 
Kettering Division of the Medical College. The result- 
ing expansion of both graduate faculty and research 
training opportunities on the New York City campus 
prompted the organization in January 1952 of the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences, composed of 
two cooperative but separate divisions, known as the 
Medical College Division and the Sloan-Kettering Divi- 
sion. The Graduate School of Medical Sciences was 
given full responsibility for advanced general degrees 
granted for study in residence at the New York City 
campus of Cornell University. 

Facilities 

Despite the divisional structure of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences, the courses offered by 
the two Divisions are open to all students, as are the 
general facilities of the Divisions such as libraries, 
dining halls, and recreational resources. 

The Medical College Division. The buildings along 
York Avenue between 68th and 70th Streets accom- 
modate both Cornell University Medical College and 
the Medical College Division of the Graduate School 
of Medical Sciences. Facilities available to graduate 
students include the Samuel J. Wood Library with a 
collection of over 123,000 volumes and subscriptions 
to 1,880 current journals, lecture rooms, study labora- 
tories, seminar rooms, and libraries of the basic 
science departments. Extensive research facilities are 
provided for faculty and students. 

The Sloan-Kettering Division. Its facilities are lo- 
cated within the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer 
Research, which consists of the Howard, Kettering, 
and Schwartz Laboratory buildings on East 68th 
Street. In addition, the Walker Laboratory is located in 
Rye, New York. Each provide lecture and seminar 
rooms, and together represent more than 100 labora- 
tories, which are available for biomedical research 
training. The Lee Coombe Memorial Library with 
28,000 volumes of books and journals is located in the 
68th Street complex. 

Organization 

The faculty of the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences is composed of the faculties of the Medical 
College Division, consisting primarily of the profes- 
sional staff of the basic sciences departments of 
Cornell University Medical College, and of the Sloan- 
Kettering Division, consisting of those professional 



6 Admission 



staff members of the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Can- 
cer Research who hold faculty appointments. 

Within each of the Divisions are Fields (Medical Col- 
lege Division) and Units (Sloan-Kettering Division) of 
graduate instruction which are formed by the faculty 
members in the respective Divisions with similar re- 
search and teaching interests. These Fields and Units 
of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences represent 
areas of concentration in which advanced degrees are 
offered. 



Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee is both the administrative 
and judicial board of the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences and its members have continuing respon- 
sibility for the academic affairs of the school. The 
Committee is composed of the Chairpersons of the 
basic science departments of the Medical College 
Division and of the Programs of the Sloan-Kettering 
Division, the Directors of the Interdisciplinary Fields, 
the Dean and Associate Dean, the Provost for Medical 
Affairs of Cornell University, the Director and Associ- 
ate Director of the Sloan-Kettering Division, the 
Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Faculty Ad- 
visory Committee (see below), and two non-voting, 
elected student representatives. 

The Executive Committee considers such matters in- 
volving the interests and policies of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences as are referred to it by the 
Faculty Advisory Committee, by individual members of 
the Faculty, or are generated upon its own initiative. 
The Committee approves the addition or deletion of 
fields of study, reviews the admission of students, 
approves student's major and minor fields, reviews the 
curriculum and requirements for degrees. 

The Executive Committee is chaired by the Dean, who 
is the academic administrative officer of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences and is aiso an Associate 
Dean of the Graduate School of Cornell University. 
The Secretary of the Executive Committee is the As- 
sociate Dean, who is also an Assistant Dean of the 
Graduate School of Cornell University. 



Faculty Advisory Committee 

The Faculty Advisory Committee is the primary body 
representing the views of the Faculty of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences. The Committee advises 
the Dean and the Executive Committee on the impact 
of educational and policy matters under their consider- 
ation and recommends changes in educational 
activities, procedures, and policy of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences. 

The Faculty Advisory Committee is composed of one 
elected faculty representative of each Field of the 
Medical College Division and of each Unit of the 
Sloan-Kettering Division, and one elected student rep- 
resentative from each Division. The Chairperson and 
Vice-Chairperson of the Committee are elected by its 
membership. Non-voting members are the Dean and 
Associate Dean, the Provost for Medical Affairs of 
Cornell University, and the Director and Associate Di- 
rector of the Sloan-Kettering Division. 



Admission 
Applications 

For admission to the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences an applicant must (1) have a baccalaureate 
degree or the equivalent from a college or university of 
recognized standing, (2) have adequate preparation in 
the chosen field of study, and (3) show promise of 
ability to pursue advanced study and research, as 
judged by his or her previous record. 

Inquiries about graduate study should be addressed 
to the Dean of the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences, 1300 York Avenue, New York, New York 10021

Division, 1275 York Avenue, New York, New York 
10021. 

Candidates may be admitted in September, February, 
or July, although places in the graduate program for 
February and July may not be available because of 
prior commitments to applicants for September admis- 
sion. Applicants for February or July admission should 
correspond directly with the respective Field Director 
in the Medical College Division or the Associate Direc- 
tor of the Sloan-Kettering Division regarding the 
availability of places. 

Application material must be completed and returned 
to the Office of the Dean together with (1 ) official 
transcripts of records from all colleges and universities 
attended, (2) a statement of purpose of graduate 
study, and (3) two letters of recommendation from 
individuals in academic positions who know the appli- 
cant professionally. In addition, scores from the 
Graduate Record Examinations are usually required 
by individual fields to aid in their evaluation. Applica- 
tion for taking the Graduate Record Examinations 
(GRE's), the Aptitude (Verbal and Quantitative) Test 
and the Advanced Test, must be made directly to the 

Educational Testing Service

Applications for September or July admission and all 
credentials, including official transcripts of records 
from all colleges and universities attended, must be 
received by the deadline date of February 1. 

Applications and credentials for February admission 
must be received by November 1 . 

Application fee. A nonrefundable charge of $25 is 
made for filing an application for admission. 

The completed application and all supporting docu- 
ments are reviewed by the Field (or Division) 
Credentials Committee. Applicants who are consid- 
ered potentially acceptable are usually called for a 
personal interview. At the time of interview, after dis- 
cussing his or her interests with the members of the 
Field or Unit, the applicant may tentatively select a 
major sponsor. If accepted by the Field or Unit, an 



Degree Requirements 7 



application is returned to the Dean who may refer it to 
the Executive Committee for final review and decision. 
A student is formally notified of acceptance for study 
in the Graduate School of Medical Sciences by a letter 
from the Dean. An applicant accepted for admission is 
requested to inform the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences of her or his plan to either accept or refuse 
the offer of admission within one month after the 
Dean's acceptance letter has been received. 

It is the policy of Cornell University actively to support 
equality of educational and employment opportunity. 
No person shall be denied admission to any educa- 
tional program or activity or be denied employment on 
the basis of any legally prohibited discrimination in- 
volving, but not limited to, such factors as race, color, 
creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, or 
handicap. The University is committed to the mainte- 
nance of affirmative action programs which will assure 
the continuation of such equality of opportunity. 

Admission policies are also in conformity with the 
policy of New York State in regard to the American 
ideal of equality of opportunity as embodied in the 
Education Practices Act. 

Categories 

An applicant is accepted by the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences (1) as a degree candidate for the 
M.S. or Ph.D., or (2) as a provisional candidate. 

Provisional candidacy provides opportunity for a pro- 
spective degree candidate, whose educational 
preparation is difficult to evaluate, to begin graduate 
studies. On the basis of the record of accomplishment 
in the first half of the academic year, the adviser or 
temporary Special Committee of a provisional candi- 
date may recommena to the Dean that (1) provisional 
candidacy be changed to degree candidacy, (2) provi- 
sional candidacy be continued for the remainder of the 
academic year, or (3) provisional candidacy be termi- 
nated. A maximum of one academic year in the status 
of provisional candidacy is permitted and credit of a 
maximum of one residence unit may be allowed on 
petition, provided there is convincing evidence that 
performance has been of the same quality as that 
required of degree candidates. 

Special Students 

Special students are those students who are not de- 
gree candidates in either the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences or the Medical College and who are 
given permission by the respective dean to take 
courses at either school. Special students must be 
degree candidates at other institutions and the 
courses taken at Cornell must be essential to their 
degree programs and are not offered by the institu- 
tions at which they are matriculated as degree 
candidates as certified by the institutions. Enrollment 
as a special student is not intended as preparation for 
admission to degree programs at Cornell or 
elsewhere. 

In the case of the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences, special students are accepted only with the 
approval of the appropriate Field Director in the Medi- 
cal College Division or of the appropriate Chairperson 
in the Sloan-Kettering Division. Special students must 



demonstrate special qualifications in terms of prepara- 
tion and ability. They must register with the appro- 
priate office in the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences or in the Medical College and must pay all 
tuition and fees before being permitted to attend lec- 
tures or laboratory sessions. Tuition is computed on 
the basis of the ratio of course hours taken to the total 
hours of instruction for the academic year (33 weeks 
of 40 hours). There is a registration fee of $25. 



Degree Requirements 



Major and Minor Fields* 

A candidate for the degree of Master of Science is 
required to register for study in one major and one 
minor field. Each field decides whether the Special 
Committee of a candidate for the Ph.D. degree must 
have two or three fields represented. Accordingly, a 
candidate for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy is 
required to register for study in one major and one or 
two minor fields. At least one of the minors must be 
outside the area of the major field. 

The Special Committee 

The general degree requirements of the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences are minimal in order to 
give maximum flexibility in choosing a desirable pro- 
gram of study. The student's program is determined 
with the aid and direction of a Special Committee, 
consisting of at least three faculty members chosen by 
the student from those fields that best fit his or her 
areas of interest. Satisfactory progress toward a de- 
gree is judged by the committee rather than by 
arbitrary standards imposed by the Graduate School 
of Medical Sciences. There are no regulations of the 
Faculty of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences 
governing the specific content of instruction, courses, 
or grades to which the Special Committee must sub- 
scribe, except those imposed by the fields. The 
committee is primarily responsible for the candidate's 
development as an independent scholar and scientist. 

No later than four weeks after enrollment, a candidate 
must file a statement of the major and minor fields 
selected for study, after which the student must 
choose one faculty member to represent each field 
and to serve on a Special Committee. The faculty 
member representing the major field usually advises 
the student concerning the other selections and chairs 
the committee. At least one member of the committee 
must represent a field different from the candidate's 
major field. Members may agree to serve temporarily 
during the candidate's first year of residence until the 
candidate has had the opportunity to become ac- 
quainted with areas of research in the fields of his or 
her choice. On completion of this year of residence, a 
permanent Special Committee will be formed, the 

"Areas of concentration towards a degree at the Cor- 
nell University Graduate School of Medical Sciences 
are referred to as Fields in the Medical College Divi- 
sion and as Units in the Sloan-Kettering Division. Both 
these terms are intended to be covered by the term 
field in this and subsequent sections 



8 Degree Requirements 



membership of which can be changed with agreement 
of all members of the old and newly formed commit- 
tees and the approval of the Dean. The members of 
the Special Committee decide on the student's pro- 
gram of study and research, and judge whether 
progress toward a degree is satisfactory. After con- 
sulting the other members, the chairperson of the 
Speciai Committee prepares term reports on the can- 
didate for submission to the Dean. The members of 
the committee serve on all the candidate's examining 
committees and they approve his or her thesis. 

Registration and Course Grades 

No student in the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences may double-register for an advanced general or 
professional degree with any other school or college 
except the Cornell University Medical College. 

At the beginning of each term, students are required to 
register with the Office of the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences and to file a registration of courses 
form indicating all courses they will take. A fee of $10 
is charged for late registration. 

At the beginning of each course in which the student 
is enrolling, the student will complete a separate 
course registration form for the instructor. All courses 
for which the student registers for credit will be en- 
tered in the official record. Grades of graduate 
students are reported as: Excellent (E\ Satisfactory 
(S), Unsatisfactory (U), Incomplete (I), Absent (Abs.), 
or Unofficially Withdrawn (W). A grade of Incomplete 
or Absent cannot be changed later than one term 
following the one in which the course was taken. 

Registration for the summer is required of those grad- 
uate students who will be engaged in research. 

Residence 

The Faculty of the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences regards study in residence as essential. Each 
candidate for an advanced general degree is expected 
to complete the residence requirements with reason- 
able continuity. A student must register each term 
from the time of his or her first registration in the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences until the student 
either withdraws or completes a degree (unless a 
leave of absence has been granted). Full-time study 
for one-half academic year with satisfactory accom- 
plishment constitutes one residence unit. Two units of 
residence are the minimal requirement for the master's 
degree and six units are the minimum for the doctoral 
degree However, the time necessary to obtain the 
degree generally exceeds the minimal requirements. A 
candidate for the Ph.D. degree must spend two of the 
last four units of required residence in successive 
terms on the New York City or the Ithaca campus of 
Cornell University. No more than seven years may 
intervene between the time of first registration and the 
completion of all requirements for the doctoral degree. 
A student must complete all requirements for the mas- 
ter's degree m four years 

Part-time graduate study, if it is necessitated by off- 
campus employment noncontributory to the major 
field of study, is not encouraged Requests for part- 
time study must be reviewed by the Executive Com- 
mittee If permission is granted for part-time study, the 
student must be in residence at least half-time 



The legislation with respect to eligibility of part-time 
students for residence units is as follows:

Transfer of Residence Credit 

No residence credit will be granted for study outside 
the Graduate School of Medical Sciences to fulfill the 
requirements of the M.S. degree. No commitment can 
be made about granting residence credit toward the 
Ph.D. requirements for previous study in another grad- 
uate school until after the candidate has entered into 
residence at the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences. At that time, the student's Special Committee 
may recommend acceptance of study outside the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences to the Executive 
Committee, which will determine the number of resi- 
dence units to be awarded. No credit can be 
transferred for study undertaken as an undergraduate 
or as a special student even in courses designed for 
graduate students. 

A student who has satisfactorily completed two or 
more academic years of study toward the degree of 
M.D. at the Cornell University Medical College, or 
another accredited medical school in the United 
States with a curriculum equivalent to that of the Cor- 
nell University Medical College, may transfer a 
maximum of two units of residence credit after passing 
an evaluation examination administered by a commit- 
tee appointed by the Executive Committee of the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 

Summer Research 

Registration is required for the summer research term 
whether or not this effort will be credited toward resi- 
dence unit accumulation. Students registered for 
summer research pay prorated tuition only if they are 
obtaining residence credit. However, no degree candi- 
date is eligible for more than two residence units in 
any period of twelve consecutive months. 

Study In Absentia 

A candidate for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy 
may petition for permission to earn residence units for 
study away from Cornell University while regularly reg- 
istered in the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. A 
candidate to whom this privilege has been granted 
may work temporarily under the immediate supervi- 
sion of an individual designated by his or her Special 



Tuition and Fees 9 



Committee, but the candidate's program will continue 
to be directed by the Committee For study in absen- 
tia, not more than two residence units may be earned 
toward fulfillment of the minimal residence require- 
ments for the Ph.D. degree A student given leave for 
such study must register as a candidate in absentia. 

Leave of Absence 

A candidate who finds it necessary to interrupt the 
continuity of his or her residence must petition the 
Dean for an official leave of absence This written 
petition must specify the term of absence, state the 
reason for the requested leave of absence, and be 
approved by the student's Special Committee. 

A student who will not be in residence but will return to 
the Graduate School of Medical Sciences to present 
and defend a thesis at the final examination, having 
completed all requirements for a degree except for the 
final examination, must petition for a leave of absence. 

Examinations 

Three examinations are required by the Faculty of the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences: (1) Final Exam- 
ination for the M.S. Degree, (2) Examination for 
Admission to Doctoral Candidacy, and (3) Final Exam- 
ination for the Ph.D. Degree. Examinations are 
administered by an Examining Committee consisting 
of a chairperson appointed by me Dean, the members 
of the candidate's Special Committee, and, in the case 
of the Admission to Candidacy Examination, three 
additional members selected from the Faculty of the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences and or of other 
institutions. In addition to these examinations, the can- 
didate's major field may require a qualifying 
examination as part -'>f its evaluation of the candidate 
after two units of residence have been completed. 

For the M.S. degree: The Final Examination may be 
oral or both oral and written. 

For the Ph.D. degree: The Admission to Candidacy 
Examination is both oral and written and certifies that 
the student is eligible to present a thesis to the Faculty 
of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. The 
examination should be taken after course work is 
largely finished but before significant thesis research 
has begun. Accordingly, the usual examination time 
will be at the end of the second year of residence. The 
examination may not be taken until two units of resi- 
dence credit have been accumulated and a minimum 
of two units of residence credit is required after pass- 
ing this examination before the final examination can 
be scheduled. The final examination for the Ph.D. 
degree is an oral defense of the candidate's thesis. It 
must be passed within four years after completion of 
the required residence units, or within seven years 
from the date of first registration, whichever is earlier. 

Foreign Language Requirements 

Each field of study has its own foreign language re- 
quirements. The student's Special Committee may 
require knowledge of foreign languages beyond the 
requirements of the fields listed in this Announcement. 

Arrangements for a foreign language examination will 
be made on application to the Office of the Dean. As 
an alternative to this examination, the candidate may 



demonstrate proficiency by having passed the reading 
part of the language qualification tests administered 
by the College Entrance Examination Board 

Theses 

A principal requirement for both the M.S. and the 
Ph.D. degrees is the presentation of a thesis con- 
stituting an imaginative contribution to knowledge 
Ordinarily, the thesis is written on a research topic in 
the candidate's major field of study, under the direction 
of the chairperson of his or her Special Committee 
The faculty requires that the Ph.D. thesis be published 
in abstract and be recorded on microfilm. 



Tuition and Fees 
Tuition 

Tuition for a student regularly matriculated in the Grad- 
uate School of Medical Sciences is $8,900 for the 
academic year 1983-84 and is payable in two equal 
parts, the first of which is due at initial registration. 
Tuition includes fees for matriculation, hospitalization 
insurance, graduation, and miscellaneous thesis 
expenses. 

For graduate students who (1) have been in continu- 
ous residence at Cornell in the same doctoral program 
and have accumulated four units of residence credit, 
(2) have passed their Admission to Candidacy Exarr 
ination, and (3) are not taking courses in the Medical 
College curriculum, a reduced charge of $1800 per 
annum ($900 per semester) will be made for tuition 
and fees for the terms subsequent to the Admission to 
Candidacy Examination. For those students who are 
accepted into the Ph.D.-M.D. Program (see p. 30) and 
will continue to take courses in the medical curricu- 
lum, an additional tuition charge, based on the 
Medical College tuition ($12,650 per annum), will be 
made for the medical course hours taken. 

A student who is to receive partial residence credit 
(see p. 8) because of employment should apply for

Other Fees 

In Absentia A graduate student registered in absen- 
tia pays a fee of $200 each term, and may continue 
hospitalization insurance by payment of the annual 
premium directly to the Student Accounting Office. If 
students in absentia take advantage of local priv- 
ileges, such as the use of the library, desk space, 
Student Health Service, and Cornell housing, the fee 
is $400 per semester. The latter fee also covers hospi- 
talization insurance. 

Leave of Absence Doctoral graduate students filing 
leaves of absence will be required to pay an active-file 
fee of $200 for each semester, up to a maximum of six 
semesters ($1,200), during which they are not regis- 
tered with the Graduate School. This fee will not be 
subject to finance charges but must be paid before the 
student can receive an advanced degree Petition for 
waiver of this fee will be considered for students who

have not completed the required number of residence 
units. 

Candidate for Degree Only A graduate student 
who returns to the University to present a thesis and 
to take the final examination for an advanced degree, 
all the work for that degree having been previously 
completed, must register as a Candidate for Degree 
Only and pay a fee of $35 unless the student has paid 
the active-file fee during the semester in which the 
final examination is taken. 

A graduate student who has previously fulfilled all 
other degree requirements, who has been granted a 
leave of absence, and who returns to the Graduate 
School of Medical Sciences to present a thesis and to 
take the final examination must register as a Candi- 
date for Degree Only and pay a fee of $35. 

Any individual who owes money to the University will 
not be allowed to register or reregister in the Univer- 
sity, receive a transcript of his or her record, have his

insurance for all graduate students. In addition, the 
Plan provides for ambulatory care at the Personnel 
Health Service of The New York Hospital-Cornell Med- 
ical Center. Physicians at the Health Service will refer 
students who require specialized care to clinics of the 
Hospital and to attending physicians of the staff. 

The cost of medical services provided by the Plan are 
included in the tuition and fee structure announced by 



the College each academic year Students will be 
issued Plan membership cards and will receive cour- 
tesy privileges at The New York Hospital Pharmacy. 

Entering students are requested to have a physcial 
examination, chest X-ray and laboratory tests per- 
formed by their personal physicians prior to 
matriculation. The hours of the Personnel Health Serv- 
ice and a complete statement of Plan benefits will be 
provided to each graduate student. 

The College recommends that students purchase in- 
surance coverage for eligible dependents who do not 
have other insurance available to them. Insured de- 
pendents are not eligible for care at the Personnel 
Health Service but they will be referred to appropriate 
members of the Hospital staff for medical treatment. 

A student on leave for study in absentia may continue 
hospitalization insurance by payment of the annual 
fees directly to the Student Accounting Office. 

A student on a leave for reasons other than study in 
absentia is not eligible to receive student health 
benefits.

Graduate instruction is offered leading to the Ph.D. 
degree. Within the framework of degree requirements 
and in consultation with the student, the course of 
study is planned to fit the needs of the individual. 
Although formal course work is required, emphasis is 
placed on research. Research opportunities exist in 
various areas of biochemistry including enzymology, 
structure and function of proteins and nucleic acids, 
molecular biology, physical biochemistry, and the inter- 
mediary metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates, 
nucleic acids, and lipids. Entering graduate students 
usually work for short periods in several of the labora- 
tories of the faculty members of the Field before 
beginning their thesis research. Students are encour- 
aged to choose challenging fundamental research 
problems that are on the frontiers of biochemistry. 

The laboratories of the faculty members are equipped 
with virtually all of the instruments and facilities re- 
quired for modern biochemical research; thus, 
graduate students are instructed in such methodology 
as chromatography, countercurrent distribution, radio- 
active and stable isotope techniques, spectropho- 
tometry, electrophoresis, and analytical 
ultracentrifugation. 

Students who undertake graduate study in biochemis- 
try must have a sufficiently comprehensive 
background in chemistry to pursue the proposed 
course of study and must present evidence of knowl- 



edge of biology, general experimental physics, 
mathematics (including differential and integral cal- 
culus). Students may remedy deficiencies in these 
areas during the first year of graduate study. The 
Graduate Record Examinations (the Aptitude Test and 
the Advanced Test in chemistry) are ordinarily 
required. 

The language requirement for the Ph.D. and the M.S. 
degrees is proficiency in one modern foreign language 
acceptable to the student's Special Committee. Profi- 
ciency in a computer programming language, as 
demonstrated by executing a meaningful program, 
may substitute for proficiency in a foreign language. 

Students are encouraged to complete applications for 
fall admission before the preceding February 1.

Graduate study in the Field of Cell and Developmental 
Biology leads to a Ph. D. degree and emphasizes the 
basic relationships between structure and function of 
biological systems at all levels of organization. Thus 
the Field is fundamentally concerned with the nature, 
development, and functional modulation of biological 
systems, as well as significance of configuration, pat- 
tern, and other spatial relations in biological systems. 
The scope of interest extends from the molecular level 
to that of the whole organism and embraces normal 
as well as pathological structure. 

Opportunities for research training include the inves- 
tigation of cellular fine structure using such techniques 
as light and electron microscopy, isolation and analy- 
sis of cellular subtractions by differential 
ultracentrifugation, cytochemistry, molecular bio- 
chemistry, and enzymology. 

For graduate study in the Field, adequate undergradu- 
ate preparation in biology, chemistry (including organic 
chemistry), physics, and mathematics is recom- 
mended. Requirements for admission are flexible in 
proportion to the promise and accomplishments of the 
applicant. Applicants are requested to present the re- 
sults of the Graduate Record Examinations. 

Requirements for minor sponsorship in the Field will 
be arranged with individual students, but research 
experience in the minor sponsor's laboratory is 
strongly encouraged. 

In addition to the courses listed below, appropriate 
courses for graduate students in the Field are Bio- 
chemistry, Physiology, and those courses given by the 
Field of Neurobiology and Behavior. 

A reading knowledge of a foreign language is 
desirable. 

The Field requires a qualifying examination at the end 
of the first year of residence. At the discretion of the 
examining committee, the examination may be written, 
or oral, or both. The Admission to Candidacy Exam- 
ination required by the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences must be taken before six units of residence 
credit have been accumulated and before substantial 
progress has been made in the candidate's thesis 
research.

The Field of Genetics is one of the two Interdiscipli- 
nary Fields of the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences. The principal goal of the Field's training 
program is to provide students with a conceptual foun- 
dation for analyzing genetic systems and questions 
and with the range of laboratory skills needed to apply 
powerful modern experimental approaches. The diver- 
sity of interests and institutional affiliations (e.g., the 
Medical College, The Sloan-Kettering Division, 
Rockefeller University, The New York Blood Center) 
encompassed by the large Field Faculty gives stu- 
dents access to a great variety of outlooks and 
research environments. Within broad limits students 
pursue their own programs and interests in this 
framework 

The usual prerequisites for admission to graduate 
study for an advanced degree in genetics are under- 
graduate work in chemistry or biology, and courses in 
general genetics, general chemistry, organic 
chemistry, general biology, general physics, and math- 



ematics through calculus. Applicants are required to 
present Graduate Record Examinations scores in the 
Aptitude Tests and in the Advanced Test in chemistry 
or biology. 

Courses generally required of Genetics majors are 
those numbered 1 through 3 below, Graduate Bio- 
chemistry (see Interdisciplinary Courses) and 
Microscopic Anatomy (see Field of Cell and Develop- 
mental Biology). Introduction to Modern Genetics, 
number 4 below, being organized for 1983-84, is rec- 
ommended. Students are also encouraged to take 
Advanced Virology, offered by the Field of Microbiol- 
ogy, to avail themselves of genetics-related courses 
offered by the Sloan-Kettering Division and by Rock- 
efeller University, and to take advantage of the rich 
and varied seminar programs offered by institutions in 
the immediate area. 

Students are expected during their first year to spend 
time and perform experiments in the laboratories of 
three faculty members of the Field of Genetics. 

Students minoring in genetics may be required to take 
two semesters of the Genetics Seminar and Advanced 
Genetics. A limited period of work in the laboratory of 
the minor sponsor is recommended. 

An oral Qualifying Examination is required at the end 
of the first year of residence, and the Admission to 
Candidacy Examination must be taken at the end of 
the second year of graduate work.

The Field of Microbiology offers graduate training 
leading to the Ph.D. degree. Under special circum- 
stances, candidacy towards the M.S. degree will be 
considered. Candidates may select an area of re- 
search from such microbiological topics as general 
and medical bacteriology, microbial chemistry and 
physiology, immunology and virology, and 
parasitology. 



Prospective students should complete at the under- 
graduate level a minimum of one year (or its 
equivalent) in general chemistry, organic chemistry, 
general physics, mathematics (including college al- 
gebra), botany or zoology (preferably both), and one 
semester or its equivalent of analytical or quantitative 
chemistry. General microbiology or bacteriology and 
calculus are strongly recommended. Students who 
have not completed the above requirements may be 
admitted to graduate study on the condition that 
deficiencies be corrected soon after admission. Appli- 
cants are ordinarily required to present Graduate 
Record Examinations scores for the Aptitude Tests 
and for the Advanced Test in chemistry or biology. 

Individual programs are determined by the student's 
Special Committee, composed of faculty members 
representing the major and minor fields. Students ma- 
joring in microbiology select their primary courses 
from those listed below. The nature and number of 
other courses that may be taken at this institution or at 
nearby universities will depend on the students' minor 
fields, their research activities, their individual inter- 
ests, and the advice of the Special Committees. All 
students majoring in microbiology are required to as- 
sist in the teaching of courses offered by the Field. 

Students majoring in other fields who elect to minor in 
microbiology are ordinarily required to take the course 
Microbiology and an Introduction to Infectious Dis- 
ease. In addition, students are required to enroll in an 
advanced course in microbiology or participate in a 
research project in the laboratory of their minor spon 
sors. In general this research is expected to take one 
to three months to complete, depending upon whether 
the project is pursued on a full-time or part-time basis. 

Ph.D. candidates are required to be proficient in one 
modern foreign language acceptable to their Special 
Committees. 

Although a qualifying examination is not ordinarily 
given, a student's Special Committee has the preroga- 
tive of requiring it. The Admission to Candidacy 
Examination is administered by a committee consist- 
ing of a chairperson appointed by the dean, the 
student's Special Committee, and three additional fac- 
ulty members. The written portion of this examination 
tests for basic facts and concepts in the candidate's 
area of study and for the candidate's problem-solving 
ability within and across disciplinary boundaries. The 
oral examination provides an opportunity for the stu- 
dent to correct deficiencies in the written examination, 
to be examined further on general knowledge, and to 
discuss and be questioned on his or her planned or 
current research.

The Field of Neurobiology and Behavior provides 
training in the study of the nervous system. It includes 
the disciplines of neuroanatomy, neuroembryology, 
neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neurochemistry, 
neuroendocrinology, molecular biology, and neuropsy- 
chology and perception. The program of the Field 
emphasizes a multi-disciplinary approach to the study 
of the nervous system, based on the belief that future 
advances in our understanding of the nervous system 
will be derived from knowledge of the thinking and 
research techniques employed by more than one dis- 
cipline. Toward this end, the program of the students 
entering the Field is planned in consultation with sev- 
eral staff members, and the students are expected to 
spend some period c*' time working closely with mem- 
bers of the faculty whose interests are related to 
theirs. In addition, there are regularly scheduled semi- 
nars in the Field during which various aspects of work 
in progress are presented and discussed. By these 
means, the students are afforded the broadest possi- 
ble view of the Field during their total training 
experience. 

The student majoring in Neurobiology and Behavior 
will be required to satisfy the requirements of the 
courses in neuroscience, statistics, and biomathe- 
matics, and two of the following: Microscopic anatomy, 
physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. The stu- 
dent must also have two minors, at least one of which 
is outside the Field. In addition, participation in the 
seminar program and advanced course offerings is 
expected. While there are no language requirements, 
it is suggested that the student achieve mastery of a 
modern foreign language or a computer programming 
language. The student choosing Neurobiology and 
Behavior as a minor is required to participate in the 
neuroscience course and the seminar program as well 
as obtain any additional experience that the minor 
sponsor may suggest. 

Applicants to the Field are expected to have had ade- 
quate undergraduate training in biology, organic 
chemistry, physics, and mathematics. Graduate Rec- 
ord Examination scores are to be submitted with the 
application. An interview with the applicant is consid- 
ered highly desirable.

Pathology is the study of the causes and mechanisms 
of disease processes. The purpose of a graduate 
program in pathology is to provide individuals with a 
baccalaureate or medical degree with basic knowl- 
edge of disease processes through study of the 
disciplines of anatomic and clinical pathology and by 
learning modern techniques of biological investigation. 
It is hoped that a student completing this program will 
have both the information and technical skills to make 
significant inquiries into the nature of disease proc- 
esses and to bridge the gap between classical, 
descriptive pathology and such disciplines as bio- 
chemistry and molecular biology. 

The graduate program in pathology includes the ob- 
servation of diseases in their various forms at autopsy 
and in clinical laboratories and study and research in 
the areas of immunology and immunopathology, on- 
cology, virology, cellular biology, and electron 
microscopy. It may also include study in advanced 
mathematics, physiology, biophysics, pharmacology, 
anatomy, cytochemistry and histochemistry, advanced 
biochemistry, genetics and microbiology. 

New students are required to have completed mathe- 
matics through integral calculus, chemistry through 
organic chemistry (although physical chemistry is rec- 
ommended), basic physics and at least general 
biology A reading knowledge of at least one foreign 
language is suggested but not required. For those 



students entering the program with baccalaureate de- 
grees only, the Graduate Record Examinations, 
including the Aptitude Tests and the Advanced Test in 
biology or chemistry, are required. 

Graduate students in pathology are required, as a 
beginning part of their program, to take the course in 
general and systemic pathology offered to second- 
year medical students. They must minor in at least 
one and not more than two other biomedical fields. 
Courses in biomathematics, biochemistry, genetics, 
and microbiology are also required. Additional courses 
not available at the Graduate School of Medical Sci- 
ences can be taken at neighboring institutions with 
approval of the Field of Pathology and the candidate's 
Special Committee.

The graduate program emphasizes sound basic train- 
ing in general pharmacology. Then, by means of 
individual instruction, the candidate receives exposure 
to several specialized aspects of pharmacology. The 
latter part of the graduate curriculum is devoted to 
research in an area of the candidate's choice. 

An adequate preliminary training in organic chemistry, 
physical chemistry, biochemistry, and physiology is 
prerequisite to graduate work in pharmacology. Train- 
ing in statistics is strongly recommended.

parameters of drug action to provide the student with 
the fundamental concepts essential for the evaluation 
of any drug. Consequently, the scientific basis of phar- 
macology is emphasized. Prototype drugs, essentially 
considered systemically, serve to illustrate several 
mechanisms and parameters of drug action. 
Therapeutic applications are considered only insofar 
as they illustrate principles of pharmacology or drug 
hazards. Prerequisites: biochemistry and physiology 
The staff. 

2. Advanced Courses in Pharmacology 

a. Molecular Pharmacology Fundamental princi- 
ples governing the effects of chemicals on living 
systems are examined from the viewpoint of drug- 
receptor interactions. Several concepts are introduced 
including drug selectivity, specificity dose-response, 
and receptor theory. Examples of receptor isolation 
and receptor-drug interactions are discussed in detail. 
Prerequisites: An adequate background in biology, 
organic and physical chemistry, and biochemistry is 
required. The staff and invited lecturers. Offered every 
other year. 

b. Immunopharmacology The course focuses on 
the fundamentals of immunologic cell reactions and 
explores the mechanism of therapeutic immunologic 
regulation. Topics include: inflammatory and allergic 
processes; mechanism of cell activation; mediated re- 
lease and action; cyclicnycleotides and prostaglan- 
dins; lymphokines, interferons and thymic hormones; 
immunotoxicology; immunologic assays and use of 
biologies and drugs for immunotherapy A background

course is offered by the joint efforts of the faculties of 
the Medical College and the Sloan-Kettering Divi- 
sions, and is offered every other year. 

3. Research in Pharmacology Research oppor- 
tunities may be arranged throughout the year for 
graduate students who are not majoring in pharmacol- 
ogy but who want some investigative experience in the 
discipline. Special opportunities are offered for work 
on the nervous and cardiovascular systems and in 
biochemical and clinical aspects of pharmacology. The 
staff. 

4. Seminars The Field of Pharmacology offers semi- 
nars in areas of interest to the faculty and graduate 
students of the field. Seminars in clinical pharmacol- 
ogy and teaching rounds are held regularly throughout

Opportunities are offered toward the Ph.D. degree in 
several areas of physiology and biophysics. Ample 
space is available, and laboratories are well equipped 
to provide predoctoral training in a medical environ- 
ment. Interested individuals are urged to contact the 
Field Director before preparing a formal application. 
Letters of inquiry should include a discussion of the 
educational background and indicate possible areas of 
emphasis in graduate study. There has been a tend- 
ency to encourage applications from individuals who 
have a probable interest in one or more of the areas of 
physiology represented within the field. 

Formal applications should include full college tran- 
scripts and at least two letters of recommendation. 
Graduate Record Examination scores are mandatory, 
since performance in these examinations is an impor- 
tant factor in the selection of applicants. Introductory 
courses in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, 
physics, and mathematics through the level of differen- 
tial and integral calculus are required. Additional 
course work in these disciplines at the undergraduate 
level is encouraged Applicants with otherwise exem- 
plary records who lack certain course requirements 
will be considered for acceptance provided that they 
remedy their deficiencies while in training. 



The course of study emphasizes the importance of 
teaching and research in the preparation and develop- 
ment of individuals for careers in physiology. This goal 
is achieved by a combination of didactic courses, sem- 
inars, and closely supervised research leading toward 
the preparation of a satisfactory thesis. 

A special program of study will be developed for each 
student in consultation with his or her Special Com- 
mittee. In addition to the general requirements set by 
the Graduate School for all fields, all candidates for 
the doctoral degree in physiology will be expected to 
meet the following requirements: 

1 . Evidence of a satisfactory background in neuro- 
sciences. Ordinarily, the course in neuroscience 
described under the Field of Neurobiology and Be- 
havior, or an equivalent course, will be taken 
concurrently with the course in physiology and 
biophysics. 

2. Satisfactory completion of the course in physiology 
and biophysics, or an equivalent course. 

3. For majors and minors in the Field, a minimum of 
two elective courses in the Field ordinarily will be 
required, in addition to the course in physiology and 
biophysics. 

4. Proficiency in reading scientific literature in one 
modern foreign language. 

5. Satisfactory completion of an individualized labora- 
tory experience in an area of research different from 
that chosen for the doctoral dissertation.

Opportunities are offered toward the Ph.D. degree in 
various areas of Immunobiology. These include the 
disciplines of: immunobiology, immunochemistry, im- 
munogenetics, immunohematology, immunopathology, 
immunopharmacology, serology, transplantation im- 
munology, tumor immunology, immunotherapy, and 
clinical immunology. 

Undergraduate prerequisites include a general col- 
lege-level background in biology and the sciences, 
including a strong background in genetics, biochemis- 
try and microbiology. 

Submission of Graduate Record Examination results, 
in both aptitude (verbal and quantitative) and the ad- 
vanced test in biology or chemistry, is required. 

Programs of graduate study for students majoring in 
the Immunobiology Unit are determined on an indi- 
vidual basis. Prior training, experience, and the 
interests of the student are taken into consideration by 
the designated Special Committee which oversees the 
academic development of each student. 

The first year of study consists of: 1) Completion of 
course and seminar requirements; 2) participation in 
laboratory rotations; and 3) initiation of one or two 
minor projects. During this time, the Unit Chairman 
serves as a temporary major sponsor. At the e.id of 
the first year, the student's performance is reviewed At 
that time a Special Committee is named for each 
student. The Special Committee consists of three fac- 
ulty members (one major sponsor or chairman, and 



28 Instruction — Sloan-Kettering Division 



two minor sponsors) from at least two academic disci- 
plines in the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 

Students majoring in Immunobiology are expected to 
take full advantage of the Unit's core program of 
courses, which consists, annually, of Introductory Im- 
munology, Advanced Immunology, Clinical 
Immunology and Colloquia in Immunology. As appro- 
priate, students are encouraged to participate in 
course work in biochemistry, genetics, molecular biol- 
ogy and biostatistics. Those students lacking sufficient 
preparation in cell biology and microscopic anatomy 
may be required to participate in course work in these 
disciplines. 

Course work requirements are those set by the stu- 
dent's Special Committee; participation in the Sloan- 
Kettering Division Graduate Seminar is required of all 
students, through the first trimester of their second 
year. The Unit intends that formal coursework be re- 
quired to complement, as best possible, the student's 
previous background and fulfill his or her academic 
objectives. Formal course work, however, should 
clearly not interfere with participation in other learning 
opportunities, such as laboratory rotations, tutorials 
and minicourses, or seminars and lectures. Students 
are encouraged to take advantage of the academic 
opportunities offered by the other Units of the Sloan- 
Kettering Division, Fields of the Medical College Divi- 
sion, the Sloan-Kettering Institute, and other nearby 
institutions. 

In the second year of study, students are required to 
take the Admission to Candidacy Examination, before 
which any minor projects required by the student's 
Special Committee should be completed. Additionally, 
students are expected to initiate a thesis project in the 
second year.

This program includes research on the structure, func- 
tion and regulation of genetic elements including 
normal gene expression, oncogenes, oncogenic vi- 
ruses, and nucleic acid replication and repair. The 
courses offered by the Unit are designed to equip 
students with a detailed understanding of modern 
concepts in genetics, virology and molecular biology 
and the ways in which these are brought to bear on 
the cancer problem. 

A good background in genetics and biochemistry is 
required of students. Graduate Record Examination 
scores in both the aptitude test (verbal and quantita- 
tive) and the advanced test in biology or chemistry are 
also required. Course work in the first year of graduate 
study is decided upon by students, in consultation 
with advisors provided by the Unit. Some courses in 
other Units of the Sloan-Kettering Division may be 
recommended, depending on the individual student's 
background. All students are also required to take 
three seminar courses and to carry out minor research 
projects in laboratories other than that of their major 
sponsor. A rotation program exists to aid students in 
choosing their major thesis topic and sponsor.

Interdivisional Course 

Graduate Biochemistry Offered jointly by the fac- 
ulties of the Medical College and Sloan-Kettering 
Divisions. This course is designed to provide the stu- 
dent with a knowledge of the fundamentals of 
biochemistry and an appreciation of the molecular 
basis of biological phenomena. Graduate students in 
the Field of Biochemistry are required to pass this 
course (or its equivalent). Fall and winter trimesters. R 
H Haschemeyer, K. O Lloyd, and staff. 



Special Programs 
Ph.D.-M.D. Program 

Students enrolled in the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences may be eligible for admission into the Ph D- 



M.D. Program, jointly sponsored by the Medical Col- 
lege and the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 
This program is designed for those few graduate stu- 
dents whose teaching and research goals require the 
acquisition of the M.D. degree in addition to the Ph.D. 
degree. The program is not designed as an alternate 
path for students who have the M.D. degree as their 
primary goal, but who have not been accepted by a 
medical school. Those who know, at the time of ap- 
plication to Cornell, that they want to pursue a course 
of study leading to both degrees should apply to one 
of the M.D.-Ph.D programs of the Medical College 
described below. Only students enrolled in the Gradu- 
ate School of Medical Sciences, or accepted for 
enrollment, may apply for admission to the Ph.D.-M.D. 
Program at Cornell University Medical College. 

Requirements for Admission 

Applications to this program are ordinarily made after 
the completion of the first year of study in the Gradu- 
ate School of Medical Sciences, although more 
advanced students may be considered. The deadline 
for application is February 1. 

To apply, the student must submit to the Ph.D.-M.D. 
Committee of the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences: 

1. A completed application for admission with ad- 
vanced standing to Cornell University Medical College 
(obtainable from the Medical College Admissions 
Office). 

2. A plan of graduate study incorporating ah required 
course work of the first two years of the Medical 
College curriculum and endorsed by the student's 
Special Committee. 

3. Evidence of successful completion of at least two 
major medical school basic science courses (anatomi- 
cal sciences, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, 
pharmacology, physiology). 

4. Two letters of evaluation from faculty of the Gradu- 
ate School of Medical Sciences. 

The Ph.D.-M.D. Committee of the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences will review the student's credentials 
and will select from among the applicants those stu- 
dents to be considered by the Committee on 
Admissions of Cornell University Medical College. 
Only applicants who are found to be acceptable for 
admission to Cornell University Medical College by its 
Committee on Admissions, after review of the applica- 
tion and a personal interview, will be accepted into the 
Ph.D-M.D Program. Final decisions will be made be- 
fore June 1. 

Degree Requirements 

Students accepted in this program must fulfill the fol- 
lowing requirements before admission to the third year 
clinical curriculum of the Medical College: 

1. Complete all required graduate courses and the 
remainder of the first two years of the medical curricu- 
lum. The students must satisfy the academic 
requirements of the medical curriculum as these are 
determined by each of the departments of the first two 
years. 

2. Pass the Admission to Candidacy Examination re- 
quired by the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 

3. Complete the dissertation research; present and 
successfully defend an original thesis at the final ex- 
amination for the Ph.D. degree. 



Special Programs 31 



After satisfactory fulfillment of the required clinical ro- 
tations of the Cornell third-year medical curriculum, 
these students may receive credit for their graduate 
studies to satisfy the elective requirements of the 
fourth-year curriculum and will then be recommended 
for award of the M.D. degree by Cornell University 

While registered as a graduate student in the Ph.D.- 
M.D. program the student is subject to the tuition 
schedule of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 
Upon completion of the requirements for the Ph.D. 
degree, the student is registered in the Medical Col- 
lege and is subject to the tuition schedule of the 
Cornell University Medical College. 

M.D.-Ph.D. Program 

Programs of study leading to the Ph.D. degree are 
available to (1) students entering Cornell University 
Medical College, (2) medical students already ma- 
triculated at the Medical College, and (3) resident 
physicians in hospitals affiliated with the Medical 
College. 

Entering Medical Students 

The applicant to this program for entering medical 
students must apply to both the Cornell University 
Medical College and the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences and be accepted through admissions pro- 
cedures of both schools. 

The purpose of this program is to expose the student 
to both medical and graduate disciplines from the 
outset. The student spends the first two years as a 
medical student studying the basic medical sciences 
and attending regular graduate seminars. The sum- 
mer months are sp^nt in the laboratory learning 
experimental techniques and doing research. The 
third, fourth, and fifth years of the student's program 
are spent as a full-time graduate student and are 
devoted exclusively to laboratory research and writing 
the thesis. The sixth year of the program is spent as a 
medical student in clinical study. This six-year pro- 
gram represents the minimum time required to satisfy 
residence requirements of both the M.D. and Ph.D. 
degrees at Cornell University. 

Ordinarily an entering medical student accepted into 
the M.D.-Ph.D. program will initially register in both 
the Cornell University Medical College and the Gradu- 
ate School of Medical Sciences. For the first and 
second years of the program, the student ordinarily 
will maintain registration as a full-time medical stu- 
dent. The student may accumulate residence credit in 
the Graduate School of Medical Sciences for full-time 
graduate study during the summer. 

During the third and fourth years of the M.D.-Ph.D. 
program, a student ordinarily will be registered as a 
full-time graduate student. In general, a student will be 



registered in both the Cornell University Medical Col- 
lege and the Graduate School of Medical Sciences 
during the last year of study for the Ph.D., which in 
most cases will be the fifth year of the program Dur- 
ing the final year of the program, usually the sixth 
year, a student will be registered only in the Cornell 
University Medical College. 

A student in the M.D.-Ph.D. program is liable for tui- 
tion to the school in which registered. During the year 
in which the student is registered in both the Cornell 
University Medical College and the Graduate School 
of Medical Sciences, the student will be liable for half 
the tuition to each school. 

Medical Scientist Training Program: This M.D - 
Ph.D. program is offered by the Sloan-Kettenng Divi- 
sion of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences with 
Cornell University Medical College and is described 
on p. 30. 

Matriculated Medical Students 

A medical student enrolled in the Cornell University 
Medical College may interrupt medical studies at any 
time to pursue full-time graduate study leading to the 
Ph.D. degree. The student must fulfill all regular re- 
quirements of the Graduate School of Medical 
Sciences. A maximum of two residence credits for 
basic sciences course work taken in the medical cur- 
riculum can be granted toward the Ph.D degree after 
the student passes an evaluation examination. 

A medical student who elects to begin graduate wor« 
leading to the Ph.D. degree in the senior year of 
medical school may register in both the Cornell Uni- 
versity Medical College and the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences. The student begins his or her grad- 
uate didactic work during that year, and, ordinarily, the 
M.D. degree is granted at the end of that year. Re- 
search in the area of the Ph.D. thesis topic is begun 
during the fifth year. A two-year period of full-time 
research is a realistic minimum estimate for the time 
required to execute the experimental and theoretical 
work necessary to fulfill the requirements for the Ph.D. 
degree. 

Resident Physicians 

The resident physician may apply for admission to the 
Graduate School of Medical Sciences as a full-time 
graduate student working toward the Ph.D. Part-time 
graduate study is not permitted. A maximum of two 
residence credits for medical school course work in 
the basic sciences can be granted toward the resi- 
dence requirements of the Ph.D. degree after the 
student passes an evaluation examination. 

Prospective applicants to these programs should com- 
municate with the Dean of the Graduate School of 
Medical Sciences.
